All children can be successful with maths provided they are given the opportunities to understand it in a way that makes sense to them. Our relationships with children help them gain the confidence to discover and develop their mathematical skills.
Math is an important part of learning for children in the early years because it provides vital life skills. They will help children problem-solve, measure and develop their own spatial awareness, and teach them how to use and understand shapes
Mathematics is not limited to a specific period of time of day; instead, it is a natural part of young children’s play and daily activities at Ruskin House Nursery such as using different materials such as rice, peas, spaghetti etc.
